The Type 95 was a Japanese scout car built by Tokyu Kurogane Industries , and was used during WW2. Between 1936 and 1944 approximately 4,700 were built. It was the only completely Japanese designed reconnaissance car ever used by the Imperial Japanese Army, which tended to use civilian cars. It was the world’s first four-wheel drive passenger vehicle placed into mass production before the Willys MB (Jeep), which was introduced in 1941. Its nickname is the “Yonki” which in Japanese means “all-wheel drive”. In the field, soldiers often called it the “daruma”.
